STATS | NOTES

AMES, Iowa—All five Iowa State starters scored in double-digits Wednesday in Hilton Coliseum as the Cyclone men’s basketball team led the whole game, posting a 91-51 victory over Kennesaw State.

The Cyclones’ starting five all registered double-digits for the first time this season.  Iowa State’s quintet was led by Melvin Ejim, Jake Anderson and Diante Garrett who each scored 14 points.  Scott Christopherson (13 points) and Jamie Vanderbeken (11 points) rounded out the scoring for the Cyclone starters. Reserve Calvin Godfrey also posted double-digits, as the freshman tallied a career-best 11 points.

With the win, the Cyclones moved to 5-0 on the season.  First-year head coach Fred Hoiberg became the third Iowa State coach to start his career 5-0.

The Cyclones started the game on a 27-7 run to distance themselves from the Owls, and Iowa State never looked back. Kennesaw State would cut the gap to as little as 10 (37-27), but the Cyclones responded with an 11-0 run en route to a 48-29 halftime lead.  

Ejim delivered a career-high 12 rebounds to record his first career double-double (14 points, 12 rebounds).

The Cyclones’ 40-point victory was the second time this season Iowa State has defeated a squad by at least 40 points.  Drake fell to the Cyclones by 48 (91-43) on Nov. 17.

The Cyclones return to action Saturday at 1 p.m. when they play host to Montana State inside Hilton Coliseum.
